The Holocaust is put on trial in this legal drama based on a true story where the suspense is not in the verdict, but in the process of getting there.
Rachel Weisz is Deborah Lipstadt, an author sued for libel after writing a book about the Holocaust. The lawsuit is brought by David Irving (Timothy Spall), a pompous blowhard who lists Holocaust denier on his resume of absurd positions.
The suit is brought in British court, where the burden of proof is on the defense, meaning Lipstadt and her legal team must prove the Holocaust happened. (Adam Graham, Detroit News)
DEBORAH LIPSTADT WILL SKYPE IN FOR A Q & A AFTER THE MOVIE.
